Mushroom 11 review

   20/10/2015 at 12:58       ALEX VAUGHAN       0 COMMENTS.
Mushroom 11 is a unique, refreshing and lovely platformer marred by frustrating difficulty spikes and occasional unpleasant design, but you should really play it.  If you’ve not heard of it by now, in Mushroom 11 you are a green blob of amorphous…stuff, in an apocalyptic wasteland. Moving through a backdrop of gorgeously painted 2D art, showing the devastation and burnt out world around you, you must navigate through the world (some of it still aliv...
Transformers: Devastation Review

   18/10/2015 at 16:56       RICHARD HORNE       1 COMMENTS.
Gaming for me recently has mainly consisted of slogging my way through open-world epics such as Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3 and Far Cry 4. And so with that mind, Platinum Games’ left-of-field release Transformers: Devastation was the most perfect of palate cleansers.  Devastation’s plot, according to Wikipedia is simply "When Megatron discovers a way to harness the power of plasma energy to cyberform the planet...

Xbox store description claims game is "suitable for Playstation Move" - more Microsoft blunders

A mistake on the Xbox store was recently highlighted, in which the newly announced ‘Instant Indie Collection’ for Xbox One was described as the perfect way to experience ‘Indie’ on Playstation. It turns out this isn't Xbox's first run with lazy store descriptions that seem to retain Playstation-specific selling points. For instance we'...

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse Xbox One and PS4 Review

What the fucking fuck have Revolution Software done to my beloved George Stobbart. His beautiful hand-drawn mannerisms reduced down to fickle 3D rendered mannequin, it's enough to make a man do a little sick in his mouth.  After this initial shock I managed to settle down a bit to play the game. Broken Sword is a classic point and click adventure series first unleashed to the world in 1996 and I bloody loved it. My chum and I sat up long into the night wrestling ...
Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime Review

   20/09/2015 at 12:36       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
Review by Adam Asunder With AAA games starting to treat couch co-op like a ginger step-child - one that once ate the contents of an ashtray for a dare - it's heartening(!) to see indie games picking up the baton and taking the act of playing with a real, living, breathing person (not that ashtray consuming weirdo though) to new and interesting places. In this case the developers Asteroid Base have imagined what it would be like to be blissed out on Ecstasy whi...

The Golf Club: Collector's Edition review

   15/09/2015 at 13:17       CHRIS OTOOLE       0 COMMENTS.
I've been gagging for a good golf game. Sometimes you want nothing more than to kick back and have a virtual stroll about some pretty places knocking your balls about. Unfortunately EA's Rory Mcllroy's Golf did nothing for me, it felt a bit unfinished and soulless, leaving the way free for HB Studio's The Golf Club: Collectors Edition to run in and nab the trophy of my heart. First impressions aren't that great though. It looks a bit of a pig's ear. It's full...
Trine 3 PC Review

   10/09/2015 at 19:59       ALEX VAUGHAN       0 COMMENTS.
Like the previous entries in the series, Trine 3 is a beautiful thing to look at. It’s a lovely looking game, with really nice touches and detail in its mystical world of wizards and magic. Such a shame then that by going full 3D in this iteration they managed to fuck it up so royally.  Trine 3 is a game based on physics puzzles, with three playable characters you can freely switch between to help you navigate through the world. There’s the warr...
Bounty Train Early Access Review

   09/09/2015 at 17:59       CLAYTON CLIVE       0 COMMENTS.
Bounty Train is chugging along the tracks of early access and I have a lot of hope it will arrive at or pretty close to its promised destination... Bounty Train is best described as FTL in 1861, pinning a genre on something isn't always easy, I guess if it's too tough for you, go with rouge-like. There is a basic non-linear back story, you inherit a train from your father, his shares in a proposed trans-American railroad have been split between...
The Swindle Review

   04/09/2015 at 16:54       ALEX VAUGHAN       0 COMMENTS.
Fuck The Swindle.  This should be so great. It’s Spelunky, but you’re a thief performing heists in a steampunk world. You break into procedurally generated levels, steal the cash, hack the computers, and get out of dodge before you get detected. When it works, it really works.  The levels are guarded by robot police, each with a vision cone in plain sight. You sneak around, bonk them on the head with your stick when they’re looking...
Octodad: Dadliest Catch Xbox One Review

   26/08/2015 at 18:04       CHRIS OTOOLE       2 COMMENTS.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a game about subterfuge and lies. You have to perform everyday tasks like fetching your daughter a glass of milk from the fridge without any of your family twigging on to the fact that you are in fact a Cephalopod in a suit. This is easier said than done however, you see being an Octopus and all you can't exactly mosy on to the fridge and pour a glass of moo juice like you and I would, oh no, you have to make it there Octodad style. ...
Velocity 2X Xbox One Review

In Velocity 2X from developers Futurlab you find yourself in the futuristic space boots of the cringe-worthily named Lt. Kai Tana (groan). You are charged with finding and freeing your locked-up compatriots and getting the hell out of dodge. To help you in this herculean task you'll be able to tap into teleportation technology using your very handy Quarp Jet, which also allows you to pick up all sorts of other deadly munitions along...
